Cracking the Code: High Schoolers Protest Dress Restrictions

We all remember the days of being called to the principal’s office. Whether it was for colorful socks (if you went to private school) or a short skirt, pushing dress-code limits was a part of high school life. But, today? Teenage girls aren’t standing for it.

Lupita Nyong’o Joins Star Wars: Episode VII Cast

It’s official: The Star Wars cast list is getting out of control. And I mean that in the best way possible. Not only are original stars like Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher returning, but now Lupita Nyong’o has joined the growing roster as well. There’s been no word on which part PEOPLE's “Most Beautiful” will play, but that’s not stopping me from  getting insanely excited about this film – and, more importantly, the future red-carpet fashion that will come with its premiere.

May the Force be with you, Lupita. See you in December.

Soccer & Fashion: More Connected Than You Think

With a certain soccer tournament right around the corner, we’ve got the sport on the brain. And fashion? Well, here at Rue, that goes without saying. But it turns out these two things are more entwined than you think. Yes, there are the colorful jerseys and knee-high socks, but there’s more to it.

Katy Perry Becomes First-Ever Global Cover Star of Cosmo

With 53.3 million Twitter followers, Katy Perry is pretty much the queen of social media. But now she’s about to reach a whole new level of royalty: magazine royalty. Katy will be on the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s first-ever global issue in July, meaning she’ll be on all 62 international editions. The cover and inside spread will feature the green-haired singer in a series of portraits shot by Matt Jones, alongside an interview conducted by comedian Chelsea Handler and designer Jeremy Scott.

If you ask me, it’s a pretty major accomplishment. And one I’m sure she’ll be tweeting about.

Pint-Sized Muse: Quvenzhané Wallis Is the New Face of Armani Junior

At the ripe old age of ten, Quvenzhané Wallis has already nabbed an Oscar nomination (the youngest actress to ever do so) and the lead role of the highly anticipated Annie remake. And now, she has yet another job to add to that resume: the face of Armani Junior.

Shot by Stefano Azario, Quvenzhané rocks a black tux for the Italian fashion house’s Fall/Winter 2014 campaign. Her take on being its youngest muse to date? ”I felt the same excitement when I got cast for a major film,” she said. “My friends are going to want to borrow all my clothes.”

And you can bet my ten-year-old self would be right there with them.

Clear Your Vanities: Gucci Cosmetics Is Coming

Gucci already has luxury style under its belt. And now, the Italian label is throwing its hat into the cosmetics arena. Set to debut in September, the line will be fronted by Grace Kelly’s granddaughter, Charlotte Casiraghi, and include everything from eye shadows and lipsticks to brushes and skin primers.

Will it be the newest makeup obsession in the business? Given Gucci’s runway beauty game, I have no doubt.

On the Run: Jay Z & Beyoncé Release Tour Trailer

One more reason to get hyped for summer? Mr. and Mrs. Carter’s recently dropped trailer for their upcoming On the Run Tour. The almost-four-minute-long action-movie spoof features Bonnie-and-Clyde-esque scenes with cameos from Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones, and others.

If you haven’t seen it yet, get on it. And if you have, you know what to expect: goosebumps, followed by a frantic Google search for tickets. (It’s that good.)

The Gang’s All Here: Johnny Depp to Film in Boston This Summer

Earlier this morning, PEOPLE reported sightings of Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp (as if he needs an introduction) and fiancée Amber Heard browsing the poetry section of the well-known Brattle Book Shop in Boston’s Downtown Crossing. Why? Because they’re making a tour of the country’s oldest bookstores? Nope. Depp will be spending the summer in Beantown filming Black Mass, the Warner Bros.–backed story of infamous South Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

And Bostonians, there’s even better news. Boston Magazine has released the filming dates and locations of Black Mass.  And not just the general area, but the exact addresses and street corners. Now, if you’re new to Rue La La, you may not realize that our offices are located in the now-fairly-gentrified South Boston neighborhood. So, will I be proposing a team outing to said street corners? Yes. Yes, I will.
